Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is presenting a virtual fundraiser on Thursday, September 10, To the World We Dream About. The evening, sponsored by PNC, features virtual lounges for conversations with Cultural Trust leadership and fellow attendees, as well as an exclusive performance by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner André De Shields and Grammy Award winner and Two-time Tony nominee Eva Noblezada, current members of the Tony and Grammy Award-winning cast of HADESTOWN, which is among the shows planned for the Trust’s 2020-2021 PNC Broadway season.
The festivities will start at 7:30 p.m. with a grand overture, followed by the evening’s entertainment and private breakout rooms for post-show cocktails.
Single tickets for the virtual celebration are $500 per person at trustarts.org/pct_home/support/gala, which includes access to the post-show Zoom lounge. Tables start at $7,500. Money raised from the online event will help support the trust’s Art Connects Us: A Critical Fund for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust campaign. The Cultural Trust faces a $6 million deficit due to a steep drop in ticket sales, theater rentals and parking revenue because of COVID-19 shutdowns.
